Read "A Tribute to Alvin Fielder - Live at Vision Festival XXIV" reviewed by Troy Dostert

When the free jazz world lost drummer Alvin Fielder in 2019, it lamented the passing of someone who had in many ways worked to expand the reach of avant-garde jazz, to widen its accessibility to fans and students alike. His well-known status as a founding member of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM) ...

Heroes Are Gang Leaders: Artificial Happiness Button

Read "Artificial Happiness Button" reviewed by Mark Corroto

We can be pretty sure that in heaven the champion poet is heard saying, “I'm Gil Scott Heron and I approve of this message." The same can be said of the late Amiri Baraka whom the art, poetry and music troupe Heroes Are Gang Leaders was created to honor with their first release in 2014. What ...

Here he's reunited with Parker, drummer ...

Cooper-Moore: Catharsis and Creation in Community Spirit

Read "Cooper-Moore: Catharsis and Creation in Community Spirit" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

It's tempting to think of a life in music as a linear story with a beginning, middle and end, because that's the way life is: we are born, we live, and then we die. In this narrative, one could assume there will be highs and lows and masterpieces might emerge out of a misty fog of ...

Dave Sewelson: Music for a Free World

This is baritone saxophonist Dave Sewelson's (William Parker's Little Huey Creative Music Orchestra, Microscopic Septet) first recording as a leader since the 1979 release, Synchro-incity for the TFYM record label.

Ivo Perelman Makes It Rain

Read "Ivo Perelman Makes It Rain" reviewed by Mark Corroto

If music was sports, then Ivo Perelman would be baseball and most other musicians football. Where football's regular season is 16 games, baseball plays 162. Likewise, most musicians release one album every year or two, but Perelman has averaged seven titles per year for the last seven years. His 2017 Leo Records output is thirteen (fourteen, ...

Eri Yamamoto: The Poet’s Touch

Read "Eri Yamamoto: The Poet’s Touch" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

One of the many places to go if you want to listen to jazz in New York is Arthur's Tavern. The special thing about that place is not that it is a jazz bar, but the fact that the same piano trio has played there for nearly 20 years. The name of the trio is Eri ...

Greg Ward & 10 Tongues: Touch My Beloved's Thought

Read "Touch My Beloved's Thought" reviewed by Vic Albani

Tanti ma tanti anni fa, di passaggio da quelle parti per un giro chicagoano, mi domandai cosa cavolo potesse lasciare ai posteri un posto come Peoria (capitale dell'omonima contea) a parte un celebre discorso di Abramo Lincoln del 1864 sulla schiavitù e i diritti del popolo nero, l'aver dato i natali a un paio di discreti ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
